    One of my favorite bloggers, Bardiac, wrote a great post this week discussing just what’s wrong with that “Why Gen Y Yuppies Are Unhappy” post, from over at Huff Post, which has been all over the blogosphere lately: “Again With the Kids These Days.”

    Just wanted to signal-boost a really interesting interview I saw of two WOC in the military talking about the representation of women in military-focused video games.
